Not talking about Conservative Thinkers…


In this CNN report the DHS refutes any link to the report to any conservative thinkers, activists etc, but I beg to differ.

*(U) Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented(based on hatred of particular religions, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly anti government, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.

What conservative does not reject most federal authority in favor of state or local authority? That describes the conservative ethos better than most conservatives can. Do these yahoos think we’re stupid?

A DHS official said the department was not trying to squelch free speech by issuing the report. "There is no link between extremists being talked about in that report and conservative political thinkers, activists and voters," the official said.

But conservative radio talk show host Roger Hedgecock was not persuaded. "If the Bush administration had done this to left-wing extremists, it would be all over the press as an obvious trampling of the First Amendment rights of folks and dissent," he told CNN.

In fact, the Obama administration in January did issue a warning about left-wing extremists. Both reports were initiated during the administration of former President George W. Bush.

If there’s a left-wing report, let’s see it. Time to put up or shut up you irrelevant …. don’t want to say what I really feel.  Not targeting conservative activists my Southwest Virginia, redneck, gun-toting backside.
